The concert was fabulous. Great performers and the venue is excellent. Good sound throughout the Hall. What was disappointing is that even after mentioning audience disruption to a page, nothing was done. Children talki8ng, parent chatting with others, and one man continued to hold up...More

The sound carries beautifully, and the inside of the building is a wonder to see. A warning to anyone with mobility issues though....many staircases of varying heights. I won't be going back for that reason.

Traditional venue for dance, music or talk. Good acoustics but cramped seating. Skip the drinks - save your firepower for a real cocktail before or after your show. i've seen Taiko Drummers, Portuguese dancers, comedy acts and plays here. All fine offerings - but no...More

For music, drama or lectures it can't be beat. A true landmark in Portland entertainment with easy parking nearby.

While the Schnitz attracts top-name entertainment, the seating is very uncomfortable--little leg room. After many visits, I have yet to find a comfortable seat.

I've been to Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall number of times for Oregon Symphony Concerts, Pink Martini performances and many others. I love this venue. The atmosphere and the sound acoustics are fantastic. Amazing place for arts and cultural events.

This concert hall is the best place to view and listen to some world class instrumentation. We attend symphonic concerts 3-4 times a year and intend on continuing our trend.

We enjoyed coming to see the symphony here but found the acoustics to have some design flaws. We could here some echoes. This is a beautiful hall with some incredible decor. The raised ceilings were specifically impressive.

Parking is very easy to find in that area; as well as a lot parking structure 1-2 blocks from the venue.

I found the mezzanine seating very comfortable with a great 'vista' view of the stage. Just be aware of the roof supports. Have a great time.
